THE COAST STARLIGHT at the La Jolla Playhouse

A world-premiere play

The Coast Starlight follows a young man who, one morning, boards the Coast Starlight, the long-distance train that runs from Los Angeles to Seattle. He’s got a secret that can land him in terrible trouble, and he has roughly one thousand miles to enlist the help of his fellow travelers – all of whom are reckoning with their own choices in search of a way forward. Keith Bunin’s new play is a smart, funny and compassionate story about our capacity for invention and re-invention when life goes off the rails.

August Wilson’s Jitney

Jan 18 - Feb 23, 2020

The American master and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson had a close relationship with The Old Globe, where three of his plays premiered. His exciting work returns to our stage with the production that won the 2017 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play, directed by one of Wilson’s foremost interpreters, Ruben Santiago-Hudson. In 1970s Pittsburgh, the unlicensed cab drivers in a Hill District garage fight to save their business and their livelihoods as their neighborhood gentrifies around them. As the drivers strive to fulfill their hopes and dreams, Wilson’s bracing command of drama and thrilling sense of language conjure stage brilliance. Contains strong language.

Shen Yun invites you to a breathtaking experience. Travel back to the magical world of ancient China. Experience a lost culture through the incredible art of classical Chinese dance. See legends come to life on stage.

Shen Yun pushes the boundaries of performing arts. Ancient art forms meet with innovative multimedia, stunning costuming. all-original music, and masterful artistry. Diverse ethnic and folk traditions are beautifully evoked through dance alongside stirring legends and stories. With its very own unique orchestra, Shen Yun makes for an experience you won’t find anywhere else.

Traditional Chinese culture—with its deep spiritual roots and profoundly optimistic worldview—was displaced by communism in China. While Shen Yun cannot perform in China today, it is sharing this precious heritage with the world.
